Audience Reviews for The River Niger
A house painter/poet hits hard times when his son returns home and his wife is diagnosed with cancer. Powerful message though-out drives the almost comic tone of this ultimately very serious drama. Not great, but certainly worth a look for some outstanding performances and social commentary.
